At Go Bare! a team of veteran aestheticians elevate their range of traditional spa and waxing services with a carefully curated collection of skincare products made both locally and around the globe. Their Belgian waxes are triple-filtered and infused with zinc and titanium dioxide to minimize redness after hair-removal sessions. For skin nourishment, aestheticians use a physician-developed line of epidermal elixirs hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, where they're made with vitamins and antioxidants. Locally made creams, meanwhile, boast 100% organic blends of mint and chocolate, or vanilla and honey, and are painted across freshly waxed skinscapes to soothe the aches that follow follicular uprooting.
Raun's extensive staff of mane mavens bedecks headscapes with accentuating styles inside a chic, expansive studio. A noodle-nest re-invigoration begins when tress-tamers apply a single-process color to fading locks, bolstering folicles with the reinvented radiance of an LED light bulb. Then a partial highlight brightens mop-tops and adds extra accentuation to bring out natural beauty. Raun's boasts a broad roster of experienced colorists who lead patrons through customizing a color combination, much like a sherpa guiding a lost traveler through the intricacies of high-school chemistry

Stylists wash, cut, and style coiffures into face-flattering designs, adding partial or full highlights to attract attention more tastefully than a tub of popcorn chatting on a cell phone. During the one–two hours of pampering, visitors can take in Laura Michaels’ modern décor, which encompasses droplights, sleek wooden floors, and an end-table with quirky cut-outs.
